It was thus said that the Great Valerio Schiavoni once stated:
> Hello

Would the following do the trick?



# You have to supply a filename, sans the ".lua" extension, else this will
# bomb out I don't know enough bash scripting to fix this.  Think of this as
# a "proof-of-concept".

cat <<EOF >$1
#!/usr/bin/env lua

luac $1.lua
cat luac.out >>$1
/bin/rm luac.out
chmod 755 $1
exit 0
